When students first arrived at Southmoreland High School on the morning of Thursday, April 25, they may have several younger children here and there to greet them. It was in fact, Bring your kid to work day, and many teachers participated by bringing their little ones to spend a day in the life of a highschooler.
Senior Genesis Harshell got to interact with Mrs. Liz Goodman’s daughter, Claire, throughout the day. Claire shared that she “got to paint” and “make paper airplanes” in the art room.
“I enjoy being around kids and working with them. Claire and I made a watercolor picture and spent time in Mrs. Puskar’s classroom.” said Mrs. Goodman.
Some of the kids were eager to share their experience during their lunch break.
“It was cool to watch what happens in high school. I had fun,” said Ms. Carrie Bisher’s daughter, Sophia.
Many of the students may have been surprised to walk into Mr. Zack Cavalier’s classroom to find his son, William, holding a bee.
“He found a bee in the grass at home and tried nursing it back to health,” Mr. Cavalier said. “He wanted to share his experience with the students. We even looked at the bee under a microscope.”
When asked why he was glad to bring his children to work, Mr. Cavalier said, “It is always fun to show them cool things for the first time.”
By the looks on the children’s’ faces, it was evident that they enjoyed the opportunity to visit the high school and not only see what their parents did every day, but also being able to interact with high school students and realize that that would be them some day.
